Product Details:

  • Product Name: Simvastatin
  • CAS #: 79902-63-9
  • Mode of Action:

    The 6-membered lactone ring of simvastatin is hydrolyzed in vivo to generate the beta, delta-dihydroxy acid, an active metabolite structurally similar to HMG-CoA (hydroxymethylglutaryl CoA). Once hydrolyzed, simvastatin competes with HMG-CoA for HMG-CoA reductase, a hepatic microsomal enzyme. Interference with the activity of this enzyme reduces the quantity of mevalonic acid, a precursor of cholesterol.

  • Pharmacodynamics:

    Simvastatin, the methylated form of lovastatin, is an oral antilipemic agent which inhibits HMG-CoA reductase. simvastatin is used in the treatment of primary hypercholesterolemia and is effective in reducing total and LDL-cholesterol as well as plasma triglycerides and apolipoprotein B.

  • Metabolism:

    Hepatic, simvastatin is a substrate for CYP3A4.

  • IUPAC: (1S, 3R, 7S, 8S, 8aR)-8-{2-[(2R, 4R)-4-hydroxy-6-oxooxan-2-yl]ethyl}-3, 7-dimethyl-1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 8a-hexahydronaphthalen-1-yl 2, 2-dimethylbutanoate
